Castles are simply the best

Castle's are simply the best, they seem to stock everything and know how to tackle anything to do with the house and home. everyone can always advise on which product to use and how to use it, years of experience from professionals really makes a difference. my furniture renovation projects now a success thanks to Castle's expert help.

Discrimination Against Customers Exempt From Wearing Face Coverings.

An earlier review was left for this business on Yell, but the Company had it removed, as they regretfully do not regard negative comments as being a positive means of improving on their poor service to disadvantaged customers.

I will therefore be looking into the possibility of reporting this Business for their recent, blatant discrimination against a person with a disability.

The British Government has recognised and made provisions for such disadvantaged people during these very trying times, its therefore both astonishing and alarming that this Business chooses to ignore this guidance as laid down by the Government.

Nice atmosphere, and nice, helpful, knowledgeable staff

Fantastic shop - seems to stock everything. Could not find a sweep's brush anywhere. Castles - "Yes sir, 6" 9" 12" or 15" ?"
Wanted an Allen key for a rifle magazine even gunsmiths did not stock. Castles - "O that silly American size, yes sir, how many would you like?" Could not get a scythe sharpening stone - people use strimmers nowadays. Castles - "Yes sir, round or oval?"
Wanted parliament hinges big stores do not stock. The last big store I tried even suggested Castles, and you guessed it.............Castles said - "Yes sir" !!
